These illuminating shots from Simon Berger light up the screen. The dynamics of the images change as Berger fills each shot with raining light that is juxtaposed against the shadowy darkness of the frame.

Each shot appears to be taken in the dark of night, where you can barely make out the urban background. Yet, the glimpses of graffiti show the true environment of the photographs.

The captures appear to have a film noir feel emphasized in the the shots that incorporate an umbrella as prop. As the figure leans against the side of the wall, one can only imagine them as a cynical crime-solving detective waiting for their femme fatale.
